She Taught Herself How to Read: Mercy's Story

 
“When Mercy grows up, she wants to be a Prime Minister.”
 
That’s what Mercy’s caregivers said when she first came to COTN–Uganda. She was just ten years old, but she was hardworking and had big dreams of helping others.
 
But until she came to COTN, Mercy didn’t have the opportunities to achieve these dreams.

We are blessed to continue construction on the secondary school campus of COTN-Uganda. The latrines project was just finished as well as a solar pump for one of the wells on campus. Because both of these projects have just finished, we would like to connect the newly constructed latrines and the existing staff latrines to the solar pump so they will have running water.
 
At the moment, we are pumping water by hand and filling drums to keep water going in these two bathrooms.

From Illiterate Student to School Teacher: Janet's Story

When twelve-year-old Janet first came to COTN–Uganda’s Children’s Home, she was finally able to attend school regularly. But twelve years old is pretty late to start an educational career. COTN staff described Janet as a “well-behaved, active, and friendly, young girl.” But they also noted: “She is easily distracted and needs someone to encourage her in school studies.”

The Healing Power of Compassion

 
Sick children can carry deep emotional pain with their illnesses: feelings of shame, uselessness, and loneliness. It takes a special kind of person to help heal both emotional and physical pain.

Updates: Car Accident in Uganda

COTN-Uganda is excited to move forward with plans of a computer lab for Marani Honors High School. Currently, our students are leaving secondary school without learning even basic computer skills.

But once our children enter university, they are expected to know how to use a computer to research and write papers. In addition, the secondary curriculum for Uganda does identify computer classes as an important part of secondary education. However, we can’t complete this part of the government curriculum because we don’t have the resources needed.
